Jamie Redknapp selects Newcastle United star in his Premier League team of the week

1 year ago

Jamie Redknapp has picked his best 11 Premier League players from this past week.

The former Liverpool and Spurs midfielder including Miguel Almiron in his team of the week.

Jamie Redknapp says that Miguel Almiron arrived with ‘much hype’ but is already looking the ‘real deal’ for Newcastle United.

Not many Newcastle fans would disagree after his livewire display against Huddersfield when he did everything but score a goal.

The only thing I would maybe disagree with is that if Almiron makes this PL team of the week then Sean Longstaff should definitely be included as well, as he was man of the match without question at St James Park.

Jamie Redknapp explains his selection of the Newcastle star and then his full Premier League team of the week.

Miguel Almiron (Newcastle United)

“The Paraguayan arrived on Tyneside with much hype after his exploits in Atlanta…

“But he already looks the real deal and helped Newcastle to a vital win over Huddersfield.”
